I cleaned the engine bay for the first time, possibly in the cars life.

Some before and afters:












Some other additions, his and her name plates:

I just had a crisis......

I like how far back the engine sits showing that even though technically it's a front engine vehicle, the engine is behind the front axle so actually more front mid.

Good work!

It does indeed sit a long long way back. I had a V12 Vantage before this and from memory that was even further back. It's a wonderful machine

Excellent job there lovely car I'm sure David and Iris would be well chuffed I like how they finish with the screw heads the same way it's little things like that make a big difference.

It's a beautiful thing

Needs just a lick of Kurust or Hydrate 80 on the nuts holding the wiper arms on

Indeed, those nuts are not so nice.
I can't say it's held up particularly well; CD02 engine cleaner from 10 years ago still can't be beaten, unless others have some recommendations now?
